Samsung U485 Intensity III - User Reviews

  • 128MB RAM? That's way too much. Even the Nokia N95 has less RAM!

  • Didn't Tecksmartz drop test this phone?

  • I have had my Samsung cell phone 6 months I like it as well bet screen is small to view my picS ,But one was asking about the sim card look oN right side when you turn it on side there is a closed space showing in small indent print Micro Sd-- KEEP LOOKING TILL YOU SEE IT you have to use your nail or SOMETHING TO RAISE IT UP TO SEE HOW LARGE TO BUY A CARD OR A STICK AS THEY CALL IT NOW . HOPE THIS HEPLS YOU .

  • I just purchased the Samsung u485 intensity 3 phone. Why does it need charged everyday, even if I don't use it. Its supposed to have up to 5 hr talk time.

  • I got this phone. It's a total junk! ~Flat and inconvinient keyboard layout (much worser than on intensity 2 which i lost) ~traditional CDMA-garbage call/sound quality! ~traditional CDMA-low battery life! SAMSUNG: what the heck?!

  • I only wish Samsung made an Android version of this phone. I love it, as I want a Hybrid touchscreen phone with both a traditional numeric keypad and a QWERTY keyboard. Some of still love real buttongs. Of course, I just wish the phone had a bigger high res screen and was a little wider!

  • Sorry, but this is only CDMA phone - that mean there are no sim card slot. And zero options to use this phone with sim cards.

  • Can someone tell me where's the sim card slot for this phone? thanks

  • Phone Indicating insert Sim,enable me to open mine

  • Got this one last summer to replace an older Samsung flip phone. It has more features than I really use, but it has worked very well for's a good size, good slide out keypad and the only complaint I have is that the screen is pretty dim in sunlight...probably help it I took my sunglasses off... I like this phone so much I got rid of my land line in November and really don't miss it...especially the bills. I have yet to connect this phone with the internet...maybe I will do that today. Great phone for the money, and I use Net 10 on 2 month prepay and have had no trouble with it...$45 for 2 months. No contract. Hard to beat.

  • can you by minutes

  • i like it

  • and I like you!

  • I like it

  • Finally a good QWERTY Verizon phone with a 3.5 headphone jack. Finally Samsung puts this very essential feature in basic phones!

  • i like it this cell

  • i really like the phone

  • hope samsung will make same design with gsm and dual sim, cool design.

  • What is its operating system........

  • ugly phone xD

  • Thank you mr obvious. Its a Verizon phone, which runs on cdma and not gsm, so why would it run on gsm

  • this is not an GSM phone and will not work on any GSM networks, what a useless and crap phone it is

  • why cant they launch something like this here.

  • mmmmmmmm
